Profile Information

Welcome, friend! 

Thanks for entering my creative writing corner. I invite you to read my poetry, my essays and my young adult stories. Some topics challenge the fabric of our society. Others depict the real struggles of courageous girls learning to grow into strong women. 

Here, I recharge myself after lovely days of chasing my happy, curious, and sometimes mischievous three-year-old son, my miracle baby. Here, I escape and reveal the deepest parts of myself. 

A little about Joy Shaw – at the age of three, I wrote my first story about a mouse defeating a cat. That fearless mouse is me – the girl who survived abuse now thriving in a lovely life. A stay-at-home mom in the university town of Ann Arbor, Michigan, I cherish my child with my ever-supportive husband while writing snarky and realistic YA stories and while contributing monthly articles to a newsletter on Call me adventurous a lot bit zany too, I love backpacking dangerous terrain, cross-country skiing, Finnish saunas and vacations to national parks. My life would not be complete without my family or without my writing.

I share my stories with you because everyone deserves a safe space to dream. Feel free to unwind, laugh, cry, think, enjoy a wonderful moment. May you be inspired!
